Want to Have the Best Courts? Keep Records! The purpose of this article is to exhort you to keep detailed maintenance records for each court you own. As Har-Tru representatives visit courts all around the world the best facilities are, with consistency, the ones that observe strict record keeping. Every Har-Tru court is just a little bit different and your goal as manager of the court should be to understand it as thoroughly as possible. The best way to understand a court is to monitor how it performs under a variety of environmental conditions, varying amounts of play and within the context of the prescribed maintenance regimen. This is not very complicated but it is amazing how few facilities do it. Most rely on routines that have been in place for years and years. This would be fine if the court didn’t change, weather patterns were constant and the amount of play never varied but I have yet to see any court where this was the case. Consider the following example:

Har-Tru Tennis Club was built in 1977 at the height of the tennis boom. There were 3 four-court batteries with brand new lights. It was beautifully designed with a state of the art sprinkler system connected to the club’s well. The landscaping was efficient, planting fast growing trees and shrubs behind courts to help block wind and improve visibility. The courts were built around the young oak trees that marked the lot providing pleasant shade for spectators. The club quickly became a hub of tennis activity and the courts were in near constant use during the week with housewives playing in the morning, retirees midday and men and children in the evenings. The club hosted tournaments once a month bringing in the community for barbecues and match play. As was common for the time the owner managed the maintenance of the courts. They did this with the help of 2 full time maintenance workers and some high school kids who bartered for lessons and court time. They developed a routine where they shut each


battery down for 1.5 hours in the middle of the day and staggered the watering times to always leave 4 courts open. The routine was to roll every morning prior to play, sweep and water midday and sweep at the end of the day. The sprinklers would be run by the owner at dusk just before closing. Now let’s fast forward to today and consider what has changed. The answer is…everything! The courts aged and the slope and the surface thickness are no longer in spec. This changes how well the court takes on, holds and drains water. Additionally those beautiful shrubs planted along the fences have over time completely blocked all drainage off the court surface. This is creating slick spots and algae and moss problems at the low end as well as lengthening drying times after rain. The state of the art irrigation system has evolved and the club is now using different types of heads that have different spray patterns and apply different amounts of water. And I almost forgot to mention that the club was put on city water and the pressure and volume are 30% higher than when the system was designed. Consequently the club has pipes and sprinkler heads that break fairly often. The beautiful oak trees are enormous now. They are shading two of the courts on each battery and this sun/shade pattern has made it difficult to regulate how wet/dry the courts are. And play patterns are very different now. Many women have careers and cannot play until night. Tournaments are less frequent and other sports draw members away on weekends but now league play dominates so the courts are most busy in the evenings. The owner has sold the club and maintenance is now overseen by the tennis director but that position tends to have turnover every 5-6 years and the part timers who work court maintenance turn over even more frequently. OK, you get the picture. While comparing a club now to a club in the 70’s makes it easy to read the pace of change don’t deceive yourself, those changes are happening at your facility right now, every day. So how do you stay on top of those changes proactively so you have consistently great courts? You track them! Here are our recommendations for what to track and with what frequency. It matters little whether you use an iPad or a sheet of paper as long as the records are there and available for reference over time.

Why CourtPac?

RECORDS FOR DAILY MAINTENANCE

R

ecord what maintenance is done to each court every day. This includes whether it was rolled, brushed, scarified, sprayed, had material added, etc. The more detail the better – i.e. used the Court Devil Jr. along the south fence line. Try to quantify the hours spent on each court as well to monitor if that changes over time. These records can help you understand when it makes sense to renovate.

ROLCPP04 - 48” CourtPac Pro Roller ROLCPP05 - 60” CourtPac Pro Roller The CourtPac Pro was developed with safety, ergonomics, and easy operation in mind. It’s a relatively simple machine with fewer parts to assemble and little, if any, adjustment needed by the owner. The Pro was designed to incorporate the needs of the Har-Tru clay court owner, while answering the wants and desires of past Proline roller owners. The Pro is powered by an ultra-reliable, 5.5HP Honda engine and driven by a fan-cooled HydroGear hydraulic transmission.This is the same transmission used in our

recently redesigned CourtPac solid drum construction roller, as well as tens of thousands of industrial lawn mowers throughout North America.The redesign also incorporates improved comfort features for the driver. CourtPac Pro users will benefit from a fully adjustable, cushioned, high-back seat and newly designed foot deck. The new seat offers comfort and improved sightlines, and when coupled with the new, skidresistant foot deck design, makes the unit, by far, the safest and most easily maneuverable unit available on the market today. All CourtPac and CourtPac Pro rollers carry an industry best, 2-year warranty.

his is the area that will typically have the greatest effect on your court on a daily basis. To understand it well you should have a water meter for each court or court battery and record exactly how much water you are using on a daily basis and at what hours of the day. This is true whether you have sprinklers or subsurface irrigation like HydroCourt.

RECORDS FOR DRAINAGE

C

ourts are designed to absorb whatever water they can and shed the rest down a gradual slope. Track down time due to the courts being too wet. Changes over time may very well indicate a problem that might have to do with something blocking the low end of the court or the surface and base layers changing. Take pictures of the low end of your courts 2-3 times per year. Changes to the height of the landscaping outside the court and the amount of Har-Tru on the low end change gradually and are hard to track any other way. Drainage Through the Court If courts get too hard and impermeable water will not penetrate the surface layer and work its way into the base. Two things might indicate your courts are too hard in select areas or just in general: 1 - Puddles form in low spots (often the high play areas like the baselines or areas washed out over time by sprinklers) and take an excessive amount of time to disappear; and 2 – your courts consistently look bald after heavy rain. In reference to number one, a low area becomes a spot where Har-Tru fines settle and harden. Since water cannot get through here the only way it goes away is when it evaporates. This can be

resolved by scarifying and patching. Shut the court down for a couple of hours, thoroughly scratch up the area with a Lute Scarifier or Har-Tru Gator Rake, fill in and level with new Har-Tru, lightly hand water, and hand roll. Keep the court closed until the patch has hardened. If you don’t have time for this another option is to purchase a Super Sopper. This is a clay court squeegee specifically designed to mop up these pesky puddles.

As far as number two goes, a court that consistently loses its top dressing during a heavy rain might be an indication that the surface layer has crusted over and water does not penetrate. Using a Gator Rake, Steel Bristle Drag Brush and Court Devil will help re-open the pores in the court and allow water to be absorbed rather than sheeting off and taking Har-Tru with it.

the court drainage slows down and eventually stops. This is often exacerbated by facilities planting decorative shrubs and trees and/or placing mulch around the courts in such a way that the water is trapped on the court at the low end. If your courts take a long time to dry after a rain it makes sense to observe drainage by watching where the water goes during a rain storm. If the court drains very slowly, the low end of your courts and see if the water is getting dammed up. If you have plantings that are higher than the curb around your court, or the low end curb is buried and no longer visible, these are pretty good indications of a problem that needs to be addressed.

RECORDS FOR TOOLS & EQUIPMENT

D

on’t forget to inventory and track the maintenance of your tools and equipment. They are your primary assets for getting the job done. It is incredibly useful to know when and where you got something, how well it worked and how long it lasted. This allows you to budget effectively for replacement. And it’s not just tools but things like net posts, nets, shoe cleaners, benches, windscreens and all the other amenities your players are accustomed to. Establish a process for tracking these as well.

LUTE/SCARIFIER SCR04 - 30” SCR05 - 48”

The lute/scarifier is two tools in one – made of allaluminum for scarifying, leveling and removing loose granules. It is strong and sturdy, yet light enough to use all day and excellent for spreading new material during top-dressing. The concave shape of the 30”-wide blade allows the tool to “float” along the surface, without grabbing or digging in. Also available in 48” width.

RECORDING ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS

W

eather patterns change from week to week and year to year. Correlating environmental conditions to court behavior will, over time, allow you anticipate changes in the performance of your courts and make modifications to the maintenance regimen prior to having any noticeable impact on play. Keep a record of the high & low temperatures, relative humidity, and amounts of precipitation, sunshine and wind for each day the courts are open.

CUTRINE ALGAECIDE SOLCUT Cutrine liquid algaecide is for use in HydroCourt water-control boxes only. The application rate is 7 oz. per each water control box per each application. Applications should be made every 4 months.The recommendation is for 1 gallon of cutrine per court per year to deliver the best algae control available. Four 1-gallon containers per case.

RECORD KEEPING – IT’S ABOUT ROUTINES

T

o some, tracking all this information may sound like a lot of work, but really it’s just about routines. In the end, not only will this help you identify what is changing over time and how it impacts playability, it is a fantastic tool when it comes to training your staff, planning for renovation and budgeting. Find a detail-oriented person on your staff and ask them to help you create a process for capturing and recording this information. Once it’s in place get your team to follow it every day as part of their jobs and pretty soon it will become second nature. At that point you will probably have the best courts around.
